Abstract

An intensive fish sampling by using LR-24 Smith-Root Backpack Electrofisher and cast net was conducted at selected headwater streams of tbe Ulu Muda Forest Reserve (UMFR) from 4 to 5 February 2012. A total of 25 fish species from nine families were obtained. The species number recorded in the present smdy is high when compared to the previous studies done in 2003 and 2005 which recorded 11 and 17 species, respectively. Out of this species number, 15 fish species are recorded for the first time herein, making it a total of4l fish species from 16 families recorded from this forest reserve. However, the inventory is expected to increase as there are many otber headwater streams of UMFR not been surveyed as yet.
